GNU Emacs GUI (version 18.104.22.168 (x86_64-w64-mingw32) compiled from Harroogan Emacs.)
I would like to type a word in PHP-mode, and it will automatically expand to a proper word.
For example, I would like to type
$session and he will expand it to
When reading the manual about Abbrev mode
Type the word you want to use as expansion, and then type ‘C-x a g’ and the abbreviation for it. Example: t h e C-x a g t e h RET Unfortunately, if you wanted to abbreviate Read The Fine Manual with RTFM, you couldn’t just type C-x a g after “Read the Fine Manual
So I put the cursor behind the word
C-x a g and type $session. But I notice it will only expand
SESSION without the underhyphen or the dollar variable.
When I'm looking in the
M-x edit-abbrevs, then the following is mentioned:
(global-abbrev-table) "session" 0 "SESSION"
Then I try to change it to
"session" 2 "$_SESSION"
And save it with
M-x write-abbrev-file, it didn't help. Maybe the abbrev uses regexp (?), thuis excluding the dollar sign. Any another suggestion?
